Pariyaram Medical College was established in March 1993 at Pariyaram in Kannur district, Kerala state, South India.

The nucleus for this building complex was the Pariyaram Sanitorium which was inaugurated way back in 1938 or so. The engineer who built the building was Mr. Appadu Vetil Narayana Menon who belonged to Payyannur.

The Kerala State Co-operative Hospital Complex (KCHC) and Centre for Advanced Medical Services Ltd. is a Co-operative Society registered under Kerala Co-operative Societies Act 1969 with an object to build a 1000-bed super-speciality Hospital modern medical facilities and a medial college. The Management of Kerala State Co-operative Hospital Complex and Centre for Advanced Medical Services Ltd. formed a Charitable Trust Named Academy of Medical Science (ACME) under the direct control of KCHC. The above society was registered under Societies Registration Act 1860 in November 1993 with the primary objective of running a medical college.

The Institution is situated in an area of 119 acres (48 ha) in a hilly rural area (Pariyaram), 31 km north of Kannur and 10 km south of Payyanur on the National Highway 17. The population in this area lacks specialised medical care facilities. The nearest Medical College, Mangalore, is 125 km to the north. In the beginning, the hospital and colleges started functioning in the buildings owned by the erstwhile tuberculosis sanatorium at Pariyaram.

On 9 February 1997, the state Government look over the Control of the Management of the institutions. The Government has constituted a Committee named Board of Control to run KCHC and ACME. The takeover was initially for a period of 2 year ending on 8 February 1999. The period was extended periodically six months at time till 2 December 2000. This act was repealed by the ordinance taking over assets and liabilities of both KCHC and ACME. First batch started in 1995 with hundred students.

Lot of controversies regarding the fees structure of medical seats are still prevailing for this institution. Since it is only partly owned by the government, the fees structure of the college doesn't come under the government college norms, which means, even if a student gets a medical seat on merit in this college, he/she would end up paying around 1.5 lakhs per year for MBBS course. The fight against this is still continued by the political parties to make it a wholly owned subsidiary of the government.
